    I've bought this Bible for my sons, my goddaughters and two nephews. That's how much I like this children's Bible. The only quibble I have is the cover: why do they pick a kangaroo character instead of an animal that we actually see in the Bible?

    In my quest to find a bible that is effective and appropriate for a preschooler, I came across this one and decided to request both the blue and the pink (for future baby girl).

    Right away, my son was excited to flip through it and read all his favorite stories. We immediately turned to Noahs Ark as a test run to see if we liked the format of the bible.

    This particular bible uses an abridged version of the New Living Translation. I understand that the NLT is easier to understand, particularly for young readers, but in general I am not a fan of the NLT. I lean towards ESV or Hollman as they are most accurate to the true interpretation or the original language. Nonetheless, my son seemed to have no issues with understanding the corresponding scripture for each story. In fact, he was able to repeat some of the simpler verses on his own.

    I also found that due to the shortened nature of each story, often there were several missing details. Of course we cannot expect stories to be full length when reading to a preschooler, but each biblical account has its core details that are vital to the overall teaching. This is where the parent will have to be intuitive enough to bring those details into the story on their own.

    There are 85 (39 Old Testament 46 New Testament) stories included. Additionally, there are several extras that engage the preschooler even further:

    - Hands-On Activities: these are indicated by colored hand prints throughout each story and provide suggestions on applicable hands-on activities to complete that relate back to the story.

    - Time To Pray: this section is self-explanatory but includes very simple, easy prayers for the child.

    - Lets Talk: this section discusses the underlying lesson from each story and provides real life application.

    - Jesus Connection: this section very clearly displays a connection to Jesus, whether He is in the story or not.

    - Pocket & Cuddles: these are animal characters portrayed in each story to assist in activities and discussion.

    So, despite the few dislikes I have, my son seems to thoroughly enjoy it and has continued to ask to read it.

    My thoughts:

    What a great Bible for preschoolers! There are so many things about this that I really like. First, it is great I think that it has the real text of the Bible, not just a snippet of the story. The New Living Translation is used so the stories are easy to understand I thought. Second, the illustrations are wonderful. Children will like these a lot I believe. Third, the hands-on activities are just perfect for little ones and relate appropriately to the stories. Some of the activities I liked are: "Stand in a doorway, and try to block me from getting through." from the story Balaam's Talking Donkey; "Name three people who make you feel safe." from the story Boaz Helps Ruth. Finally, I like that at the end of each story is a prayer, a couple more activities, a couple questions, and "The Jesus Connection." Every story points back to Jesus.

    If you have a preschooler in your family, this is a great Bible for you to read with them. Read more about it here. (I notice there is one of these available with a blue cover as well in case you were wondering!)

    I received this book as part of the Tyndale review program. Thank you.

    Explore the wonders of Creation and Jesus' life with your preschooler in a new and exciting way.

    The fact that there is true scripture in this "kid's" Bible is one of my favorite aspects of this book. The Word of God is important and our children should be included in that. The verses are abridged, but not revised. Not all of the Bible is portrayed, however there are many key stories from both the Old and New Testament.

    My First Hands-On Bible is a wonderful first Bible for preschool aged children. My son is 3 years old and really enjoys the stories and activities. The stories are short enough that he doesn't loose interest before we are done and the activities throughout help to keep him engaged. Throughout the day and for days afterwards, he is still repeating the lessons he has learned. I really feel that the activities helped to make it stick for him. I recommend this Bible. It is a great way to introduce children to reading The Word daily and learning about God's love.

    I received a free copy of My First Hands-On Bible from Tyndale Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
